Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The proposed operation concerning a UA 4 million grant of additional funding from the Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF) under the Togo Agro-Food Processing Project (PTA-Togo). PTA-Togo being a pilot project implemented as part of the Togo AgropolesStrategic Development Plan 2017-2030and the Feed Africa Initiative 2016-2025. This NTF additional financing should allow for the development of part of the irrigated areas (for sustainable increase in agricultural productivity) and also helps to guarantee access to drinking water for households and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) located in village centres, particularly those involved in the processing of agricultural products and related service delivery. It is, therefore,intended to finance the implementation of these two essential components that would increase the resilience of agro-pastoral production systems and boost agricultural processing capacities to ensure the achievement of the project's expected outcomes. The implementation of activities financed from the NTF loan will run from April 2019 to 31 December 2023.

This additional funding from the Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF) is intended to finance the development of irrigated areas and drinking water supply systems in certain localities in the initial project area (Kara region). The specific objective of the NTF loan is (i) to develop gravity irrigated areas (about 600 ha) downstream of the agro-park dam; (ii) provide drinking water supply (DWS) to four village centres and secondary localities to meet the needs of households and agro-entrepreneurs, drill 30 boreholes equipped human-operated pumps and rehabilitate 8 boreholes equipped with human-operated pumps.

The population of the Kara Region estimated at 769,940 will benefit directly from the fallout from this operation.
